Melissa stumbled into a career in broadcasting many years ago when she moved to Wichita, Kansas to be near her soon-to-be husband. The attraction (to radio work, that is) was immediate, and the chance to be around great music without having to practice piano was irresistible. After establishing herself as a host and producer in Kansas, Melissa moved to Minnesota and continued her work in St. Paul. Her morning classical show was twice named "Best Classical Radio Program" by the Twin Cities paper City Pages. When she's away from the airwaves, Melissa loves to run, read, and spend time with her family.
